Projects: Marina Abramovic's appearance in Jay Z's "Picasso Baby" music video, her film of Lady Gaga practicing "The Abramovic Method," and "The Life and Death of Marina Abramovic" at Park Avenue Armory
Save for what she reveals in her performances, Marina Abramovic is something of an enigma—more expressive through actions than words. In 2013, however, the grandmother of performance art took to Reddit, revealing some details about her personal life and upcoming projects during an AMA (Ask Me Anything) session.
Abramovic's responses followed the artist's epic appearance at the filming of Jay Z's "Picasso Baby" music video at Pace Gallery, where she briefly shared a platform with Hov. No stranger to collaborations, despite shocking us by engaging with two giant celebrities in such a shot amount of time, Abramovic also created a film of Lady Gaga practicing "The Abramovic Method" for Gaga's artRave.
Last but not least, Abramovic reached her Kickstarter goal of $600,000 to found the Marina Abramovic Institute (MAI), which aims to foster and research performance art. The MAI will open sometime in 2015, but we're sure the world will see much more of Abramovic before then.
